Hawaii would be a good choice.

That's why the U.S. grabbed it in in the first place, as stationary carrier in the middle of the Pacific.

That is one massive mote that has to be breached.

And macadamia nuts are delicious.

Actually, Hawaii would probably be a great place to have the Olympics.

Bah, the mere fact that millions of proles care about a sport as uncivilised as football is an embarrassment to humanity! I look forward to the England squad getting knocked out each time so people can shut up!

"I'm as English as Queen Victoria!"

"So your father's German, you're half German and you married a German?"
